Edit: After moving away from Cincinnati and moving back, I am reopening as Wellman Acupuncture LLC.
The past few years have brought varied experiences for me; Acupuncturist onboard a cruise ship, substituting for a local Acupuncturist on maternity leave in Cincinnati, providing Acupuncture at a drug and alcohol recovery facility in Hamilton, bringing Acupuncture to a Massage Studio in Downtown Cincinnati, and at last I open my own Acupuncture Clinic in Pleasant Ridge! In October of 2012 I joined forces with Naturalpathic Dr Maria Hoeffer (cincinnatinaturalpathic) at her new Homeopathic setting in Pleasant Ridge where one can work with the therapies of Naturalpathic Medicine, Acupuncture, Massage, Life Coaching, and Cranial Sacral Manipulation.
I choose the name Acupuncture for Every Season because Acupuncture IS for every season! It is in the transitions of our lives, as well as the transitions of the year that we need Acupuncture. When our bodies and minds are strong, we can handle these transitions. It is when we are weakened that we experience disease and discomfort, often from things as basic as overwork, too much stress, poor nutrition, and not enough sleep and exercise. Seasonally we may experience this as allergies, headaches, and depression. Females experience this monthly with menstrual complaints. Are we able to adjust when we move into a new home? a new city? a new relationship? Are we able to let go of the previous home, city, or relationship and be happy with our lives in the present moment? How well are we transitioning from the dependency of babies to the independence of adulthood? Our bodies change through our teens, 20s, 30s, 40s, and so on. As we age, in some ways we become more resilient to the physical and emotional stresses we face, and in some ways we become less resilient. When we are not transitioning smoothly, when we are getting sick or experiencing discomfort, from Allergies to Irritable Bowel Syndrome to Infertility, Acupuncture helps us reach our full potential.
I look forward to working with you at my new Acupuncture Clinic in Cincinnati!
